Jhargram (WB): The Maoist-backed People's Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA), which has been denying its involvement in the May 28 Jnaneswari Express disaster, today announced withdrawal from tomorrow of its month-long blockade in the Junglemahal.

The tribal body was withdrawing its blockade as it was causing problem for the common people, PCPA Spokesman Asit Mahato told agency over phone.

Buses, trucks and trekkers had stopped plying in the PCPA strongholds of West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts collectively know as Junglemahal after the blockade was enforced to demand the production in court of arrested PCPA supporters and withdrawal of the anti-Maoist operations.
